Chris DeLuca of the Chicago Sun-Times says so:
Sources say the Cubs have been pushing the Tampa Bay Rays for a quick deal. The Rays were one of Bradley’s top suitors last winter until the Cubs let the world know they had a three-year, $30 million offer on the table. The Rays loved Bradley’s on-base magic and manager Joe Maddon is so self-assured — to a fault — he believed he could handle Bradley’s unique personality as deftly as Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington did in 2008.
I would be interested in this as Bradley was my top choice in last year’s free agent class because he could switch hit and play the field. If the Cubs would do Burrell for Bradley so both teams could shed contracts they regret inking, I am on board with it. The thought of paying Burrell $9,000,000 next year sickens me because the Rays are paying a declining skill set who is a double detriment since he is a huge risk when he puts a glove on.
